new work

A client asked me to make something for a vet, inspired by her logo with a dog, a cat and a rabbit. I made this series of three illustrations, with each animal in its own little world.

book presentation and workshop at Huiszwaluw

12 March 2016
On Saturday the 12th of March Huiszwaluw and Uitgeverij Loopvis organize a special afternoon. Come and be enchanted by the story of Schobbejacques and seven goats by Merlijne Marell. And seize this opportunity to turn your copy of this wonderful book into a collector's item, with a personal illustration of Merlijne. Or join the walk-in workshop, where you easily create a beautiful diorama, in a glass jar, cigar box or carton.

Best Verzorgde Boek 2015!

22 February 2016
Whoopee, Schobbejacques en de 7 geiten is one of the Best Dutch and Flemish Book Designs 2015!

Publishers, commisioners, designers, printers and binders have submitted books that appeared in 2015 amounting to 410 books in total. They were judged by a Dutch-Flemish panel consisting of Carolien Glazenburg (curator at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam), Wouter Roelants (bookseller and publisher), Luc Derycke (designer, Ghent), Koen Brams (former director Jan van Eyck Academie & former chief editor De Witte Raaf) and Freek Kuin (creative director at printer robstolk®). The books that they have selected distinguished themselves conspicuously by their editorial choices, graphic design, treatment of images and text, choice of material and technical workmanship.

book launch

10 January 2016
On Sunday the 10th of January the new edition of Schobbejacques en de 7 geiten will be presented at Bos & Heij, Arnhem. You are invited to raise a glass with us in the brand new Bos & Heij cafe. I will read a fragment of the story and former Introdans dancer Karin Lambrechtse brings Schobbejacques to life in a villainous dance improvisation. Of course it is possible to buy the book and get your copy signed on the spot.

Op weg naar verder

October 2015
New in my shop: Op weg naar verder, a small narrative about the willingness to make big decisions. The story is told in pictures only, and published as a little booklet which can be sent (envelope included). On the backside of this booklet there is some space to write a personal note. Perfect to encourage someone special, and lovely to surprise your (international) snail mail contacts. Published by Uitgeverij Loopvis.
